The building is 87 years old and originally built as a residence for a wealthy family. It was renovated into a guest house in April 2011. The carpenter who built the building specialized in temples and shrines which reflects throughout the building with similar characteristics including a large shrine inside.
The guesthouse was named Kamejikan which means turtle time in Japanese. The name was given in hopes that the guests would spend relaxing times here and remember the slow flow time in the old days. You would enjoy staying at the traditional Japanese wooden architecture.
Zaimokuza area developed in 13th century as a main port in the Kamakura period, though only the ruins of the port could be seen from the Zaimokuza beach nowadays. The streets have a laid back feeling and you could find an atmosphere of days past.
